New Scoreboard on the Way
Great news for the Shamrock Family. We have been successful again with a Grant from the Federal Government's Dept of Social Services, VOLUNTEER GRANTS, for a sum of $5,000. Late last year we made an application for a Grant under the Volunteers Grants Scheme for funds to help purchase an Electronic Scoreboard. Today we got a call from Sharon Bird's office to say that we had been successful. This will make it even easier for us to post the scores on Match Day. This is just... another great addition to the improvements we have seen in the past years due to the dedicated efforts of our Management Committee and how we have lobbied and successfully got the great support of Federal Member, Sharon Bird and State Member Ryan Park and Wollongong City Council. Look around and you see a safe access across the creek to our sporting precinct, you can park in safety and comfort, no more mud hole, the club has a clubhouse that is the envy of every club in the IDRU and the new fence around the club provides a safe and secure environment. While we will never forget our roots at Nicho Park the sporting precinct we now have at Ocean Park is light years ahead of where we were. It is all down to the hard work of a dedicated Shamrocks family and the support of the local representatives Ryan Park and Sharon Bird. Without the support of all involved we just wouldn't be the great Shamrock Club that we are!
